Sami

Posted on October 25, 2014 with 0 comments
http://www.wimp.com/judgesmocked/ I wanted to share this with you - it's so beautiful!  I'm not sure that the judges were mocking as the headlines suggest - anything to get a story, eh?   But clearly they were not familiar with Sami tradition, which is indigenous to Scandinavia.
This summer I had the privilege of meeting a Sami man for the first time.   While I was up in the Hazleton, BC area he was there visiting the directors of Youth With A Mission in that area, Geoff and Mija Clarke.    He had such a pure and sweet spirit, and shared about his journey to be accepted and how he found peace in Jesus.
Why share this?  I think that the more we understand the real struggle, the more hope we have of finding answers.   My friend, Julia Lucas, A Nuxalk/Schuswap pastor from Bella Coola, shared how she struggled so much trying to forgive white people and understand why she was experiencing such oppression.   Then she went to university and she said, "Now [...]

Crossing Over

Posted on October 16, 2014 with 0 comments
The last few weeks have been another intense round of whirlwind experiences, saying hello's and goodbye's, embracing new life and saying farewell to others.  In one of the great privileges of my life I was invited to sing with our guests, Cherokee gals Jorie and Christie West (Sayani) the Cherokee National Anthem.  
Sung on the 1000 mile march in the dark days of 1838 as the Cherokee, the last remaining of the Five Civilized Tribes, were forced to walk, many barefoot,  from Cleveland Tennessee thru one of Illinois' coldest winters, 2000-6000 dying on the trail from exposure, disease and starvation on their way to Oklahoma.
This song became a sort of funeral dirge as the people were not allowed to bury their dead but were forced to leave them there on the trail.  Known as "Amazing Grace" it really is not a translation of the hymn, but different lyrics to the same tune.   Here is the song translated into English.
"God's Son paid for us.
Now to heaven He went after [...]

Pocahontos - fact or fiction?

Posted on October 7, 2014 with 0 comments
My husband likes to make the joke, "I married a white girl and then 20 years later woke up in bed with Pocahontas".   He's referring to the fact that I didn't walk in my "Indianess" until around 10 years ago when we were living in Williams Lake.   It was my first time around people who had grown up on reserves, and the first time I ever saw more than one or two native people in the same place at the same time.   It was this same time that the Holy Spirit reminded me, "Hey, you're one of them!".    And so the story goes.
This weekend we are having Sayani Duo come - a mother/daughter team, mom is Cherokee, daughter is Cherokee/Hawaiian.   How fun is that - for Thanksgiving nonetheless.   They will be with us on Saturday for our Illuminations Event starting at 6:30 pm with an open mic and 7:30 pm for Sayani's performance.   We are so excited for the fun and diversity this will bring our already multi-ethnic group of people.
